"Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" is among the most enduring nursery rhymes in the world. The song was written by an English Poet named Jane Taylor and was officially published in 1806. It is not true that Mozart wrote this piece. Take note of that. However, it is a fact that the tune used in this song is derived from another piece, specifically the "Ah! Vous Dirai-Je, Maman" by M. Bouin.
Admittedly, the song itself is contagious at first. When we were still kids, we can't help but this song, even if we are not really conscious about it. Even today, I still have an inkling to hum this song, especially during leisure.
Notably, "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" has the same tune as "The Alphabet Song" and "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep." The melody has been used by other songs in different parts in the world such as Hungary, Spain, and Germany. Therefore, if you know how to play those latter songs on the guitar, you won't have any difficulties with the prior piece.
